Herschel Walker, the Georgia legend and 1982 Heisman Trophy winner, clinched the GOP U.S. Senate primary in Georgia on Tuesday in dominating fashion.

Walker had 70.4 percent of the vote with 16 percent of precincts reporting when the Associated Press called the race about an hour after polls closed.

Walker, who helped the Bulldogs to the national championship as a freshman in 1980, got key endorsements from former President Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Walker’s highlights are played before games at Sanford Stadium.

Walker, a native of Wrightsville, Georgia, but who hasn’t lived in the state in decades, will face off against incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock in November. It’s expected to be one of the most expensive and closely-watched races of the fall.

Walker beat 6 other GOP candidates, including state Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black.

Walker and Trump have a long relationship that dates to when Walker played for the Trump-owned New Jersey Generals of the old United States Football League.

Walker won despite a lack of political experience, as well as past accusations of domestic violence and other charges of questionable business successes.
